Superior Electric SW56-1 Large Table Saw Push Button Switch for Table Saws. Features an Emergency Stop Cover. Switches are commonly replaced parts in power tools. A switch handles all on/off and variable speed functions. They also have a role in electric breaking; they can momentarily reverse electrical polarity. Because switches use mechanical internals, they tend to degrade and wear out over time, eventually requiring replacement.
Note: Our switch fits 1-Gang Standard Switch/Outlet Wall Electrical Box – Both Metal & Plastic - Boxes must have 2” Minimum Inside Depth – Screw must be replaced with 6.32 x 3/4" Machine Screws.
Note: Gang Box not included.
NOTE: Some common signs of a broken or failing switch are:
The tool will not start when you use the switch, or it requires multiple tries to turn on, until eventually it refuses to start at all. The variable speed function and electric braking aren't working properly.
